This link will give a timeline of the 20 years leading up to our independence. You will notice The Sons Of Liberty acted allot like some ninja looking friends of ours. The parliamentary government of the time also bowed to the wants of corporations and was inaccessible to people. John Hancock's crew literally nailed a customs inspector to the floor. They tarred and feathered tax collectors. Boycotted all English goods.
"Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!"
